INTERNATIONALIZATION IN HIGHER EDUCATION
Universities more than ever are looking at strengthening their internationalization agenda through strategic partnerships aiming at supporting a large range of activities including faculty and student exchange programs, research collaborations and joint programs development and delivery among other matters. Such activities require a clear strategy which must be anchored within the overall vision and mission of the institution to ensure it can effectively support its strategic priorities and ambitions, help cease opportunities and support addressing different challenges that may be encountered including those related to financial, safety and legal matters. This program will explore the multiple facets of internationalization, including examining various national, regional and international trends and examine how internationalization is impacting higher education and integrated within universities’ strategic goals and plans. It also will expose participants to various approaches and models for internationalization adopted by active institutions in internationalization and engage participants in activities which will help them plan future internationalization activities within the respective institutions. Target Audience This program may be of relevance to all those in charge of leading internationalization agendas within their respective institutions, school or department including but not limited to Vice Presidents for Internationalization, Deans of Schools and Colleges and Deans of Research and Community Engagement among others.
